Of Monsters And Men
Read on to find out a little more about this incredible band.
The six piece Icelandic band formed in 2010. Led by singer/guitarist Nanna Bryndis Hilmarsdottir. Ragnar Porhalsson on vocals and guitar. Brynjar Liefsson electric and baritone guitar. Kristjan Pall Kristjansson on bass. Arnar Hilmarsson on drums. Arni Gudjonsson on on accordion, piano and organ.
What immediately sparked my interest with this band was the constant similarities with amazing classic alternative bands such as The Sugarcubes, The Cranberries, The Smashing Pumpkins, The Dream Academy, The Pogues and The Sundays. They are often compared to The Arcade Fire and The Lumineers.
Their groundbreaking single "Little Talks" from the album "My Head Is An Animal" is still enjoying a steady ride of popularity. It has reached the top 20 in five countries and reached no.1 on the U.S. Top Alternative Charts.
The band played Lollapalooza in Chicago on August 5th 2012.
The PBS music show Soundtracks featured the band performing "Mountain Sound".
The band is slated to play Coachella April 12th and 19th 2013.
And the Glastonbury Festival June 2013.
